How to Choose Windows that Work for Your Home


At Custom Installations, we work with clients each and every day to match them with the right windows for their unique home. One of our specialties is finding the perfect fit for your exact needs. We believe each home should not only have windows that function well but also look beautiful.

When homeowners begin the selection process, they are often inundated by hundreds of choices in window brands and models. It can be difficult to find the right window for their remodeling project. Each brand promotes why it’s the best and how it will help create a more comfortable living space. As your professional partner, Custom Installations is here to help you weed through the options to find the right fit for your specific needs.

While Custom Installations is happy to install any brand and model of window a homeowner wants, there are some tried and true brands we feel stand the test of time. Over years of research and experience, we have found a select few we would recommend to those that matter most to us – our customers.

While we don’t promote any specific brand, here are some options that have proven time and time again to offer superior quality and design:

Fiberglass windows are known for their energy-efficiency and durability. The Beechworth brand has become the leader in fiberglass window replacements. Why are they one of the best? It’s because fiberglass is all they do. With over 125 years in the industry, they have perfected the fiberglass window. Their products offer a custom fit, real pine interiors and energy-efficient glass.

When it comes to the homes interior, few materials can offer the distinctive look and feel of real wood. That’s why it continues to be one of the most desired options for window replacement. Two of the most recognizable names in the window industry – Marvin and Pella – continue to be among our favorites when it comes to wood window replacement. Both offer quality replacements that keep both energy efficiency and superior craftsmanship in mind. Marvin offers a wide selection to fit every need while Pella is best known for its dedication to energy-saving options.

The vinyl window is by far the most popular type of unit requested by our customers. It offers lasting appeal and low maintenance while providing the durability you want in a replacement window. For one of the best options available consider Climate Solution’s 8000 series windows. These windows are designed for lasting appeal while providing superior performance. Each window features the CS Ultra Foam Spacer reducing noise from the outside and eliminating condensation. Each of Climate Solution’s products are made from quality components built to stand the test of time.

They are many measuring sticks in which to compare different windows brands including performance, design, hardware, energy-efficiency, warranties and price, just to name a few. For those beginning a window remodeling project, the options can become overwhelming and comparing one model to the next may seem impossible. Let our team at Custom Installations help you make the right choice. Whether you choose from one of the brands listed here or go with another manufacturer, we will ensure you receive the professional installation necessary for a lasting, beautiful finish.
